ATTENTION-loving pharma bad boy Martin Shkreli took advantage of Hillary Clinton’s Sunday-morning health scare to scream “Why are you so sick?” as she left daughter Chelsea Clinton’s apartment afterwards.

The accused securities fraudster told his 140,000 Twitter followers that he was heading to the former first daughter’s home after news broke that the Democratic presidential nominee was brought there following her near-collapse at Ground Zero.

Shkreli, who’s free on $5 million bail, used the Periscope live-video app to document himself joining a scrum of reporters outside, the New York Post reports.

“I enjoyed screaming “why are you so sick” and “go trump” at @HillaryClinton. Get well soon bae!” he tweeted.

Shkreli also told his live viewers that a little girl who ran up and hugged Clinton was part of an orchestrated political stunt.

Shkreli’s Periscope feed drew more than 1200 viewers at one point, but interest quickly dropped once he turned his attention to discussing the feds’ pending case against him.

Shreki is charged with illegally siphoning funds from a biotech firm he founded and other white-collar crimes.

He was busted after gaining infamy for raising the price of a drug used to treat AIDS patients by more than 5500 per cent.
